Class AA

Jamestown 28, Kenmore East 7: Jamestown is starting to look like Jamestown again. The defending state champion Red Raiders took advantage of a turnover on the first play of the second half and proceeded to run over visiting Kenmore East. The game pitted the No. 5 (Jamestown) and No. 6 (Kenmore East) teams in The News large school poll.

Josh Singletary ran for three TDs and racked up 161 yards on the ground for the Red Raiders (3-1), who have won two straight since falling to Lancaster.

Kenmore East (3-1) began the second half trailing 7-0, but a fumble gave Jamestown the ball at the East 25. On the next play, Singletary ran a sweep and reached the end zone untouched.

"That turnover really set us all up," said junior linebacker Andy Sturzenbecker. "We got all pumped up and just went on from there."
